Lesson Transcript

Jessi: Top 25 Spanish Questions You Need to Know - Lesson 17: What time is it? in Spanish (In each lesson of this 25 part series, you'll master a common question for Spanish learners, and then learn how to answer it like a native. You'll learn how these key phrases work by breaking them down into each component. Then through repetition and new vocabulary, you'll expand your understanding of the question, its answers, and any variations.)
In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question What time is it? In Spanish this is
Javier: ¿Qué hora es?
The first word in the question is
Javier: qué
Jessi: meaning what in English.
Javier: (Slow, by syllable) qué
Jessi: Listen again and repeat.
Javier: qué
{Pause}
Jessi: This pattern of first introducing a word at natural speed, providing the translation, breaking it down, and then giving it again at natural speed will be repeated throughout the series. Try to speak aloud as often as possible. The next word in the question is
Javier: hora
Jessi: meaning hour.
Javier: (Slow, by syllable) hora
Jessi: Now repeat.
Javier: hora
{Pause}
Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Javier: qué hora
{pause}
Jessi: (You will hear this common question again and again throughout your studies.) Master the following pattern and responses to the question What time is it??
Javier: Són las 12.00
Jessi: "It's 12:00. Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Javier: (Slow) Són las 12.00
{pause}
Jessi: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:

Jessi: meaning are.

Jessi: Now repeat
Javier: són
{Pause}
A: Next is
Javier: las
meaning the.
Javier: (Slow, by syllable) las
A:Now repeat.
Javier: las
{Pause}
A: And after that
Javier: 12
meaning 12.
Javier: (Slow, by syllable) 12
A:Now repeat.
Javier: 12
{Pause}
Jessi: Listen to the speaker say, It's 12:00, and then repeat.
Javier: Són las 12.00
{pause}
Jessi: To use a different phrase, replace 12:00 with 1 PM.
Javier: 13-00
Jessi: 1 PM
Javier: (slow) 13-00 (regular) 13-00
Jessi: Listen to the phrase again, this time with 1 PM
Javier: Són las 13-00
Jessi: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace 12:00. Say It's 1 PM
{pause}
Javier: Són las 13-00
Jessi: To use a different phrase, replace 1 PM with 5;00 pm.
Javier: 17-00
Jessi: 5;00 pm
Javier: (slow) 17-00 (regular) 17-00
Jessi: Listen to the phrase again, this time with 5;00 pm

There is a typo in one example in the vocab section:


Dormimos ocho ahoras anoche.


I think you meant "horas" not "ahoras".

"Son las doce" doesn't mostly stay the same as "Es la una" :wink: It's totally different.
